Vaccinations and the impact of COVID-19 – our continuously-updated data for Israel

Our World in Data presents the data and research to make progress against the world’s largest problems.
This data presentation is part of our work on the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Many thanks to Hagai Rossman, Eran Segal and colleagues for providing official data on Israeli vaccinations, confirmed cases and hospitalizations.

Israel has conducted the fastest campaign to vaccinate its population against COVID-19 so far. The world is now watching how the pandemic in the country evolves to assess whether vaccinations are having the intended effect, and how effective they might be in preventing infection, severe disease and death.

To answer the question of how the vaccination campaign impacts the evolution of COVID-19 requires a thorough analysis based on an epidemiological model. All we can do here is to present some relevant data to track what is happening. Note that the changes in case rates, hospitalizations and deaths cannot be solely attributed to the impact of vaccination.

To be able to track the development of the pandemic in Israel, we show the data on vaccinations, confirmed cases, hospitalizations, ICU admissions, and deaths in the following charts. The data presented below comes from multiple sources:

  • Data on vaccinations, confirmed cases, and hospitalizations by age and by geographical group (early or late vaccination) comes from the work of Hagai Rossman, Smadar Shilo, Tomer Meir, Malka Gorfine, Uri Shalit, and Eran Segal.1 Their preprint paper can be found here. This data will be updated every few days.
  • Data on total vaccinations (from our global dataset on vaccinations) and confirmed cases and deaths (from Johns Hopkins University) is updated daily.
  • Data on confirmed cases by age group, and on hospitalizations and ICU admissions, comes from the Israeli government and is updated weekly.

Vaccinations

Vaccinations by age

This chart shows the share of adults that have received at least one, or both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. This is broken down by age.

This data comes from the work of Hagai Rossman, Smadar Shilo, Tomer Meir,  Malka Gorfine, Uri Shalit, and Eran Segal.2

Vaccinations in the total population

The following charts show the share of the total population that have received at least one, or two doses of the vaccine. This data comes from our global dataset on COVID-19 vaccinations.

Confirmed cases

Confirmed cases by age and geographical area

This chart shows new confirmed cases for COVID-19, broken down by age. This is measured as the rolling weekly average of new confirmed cases.

This chart shows new confirmed cases for COVID-19, disaggregated by geographic areas in Israel with ‘Early’ and ‘Late’ vaccination campaigns. This is measured as the rolling weekly average of new confirmed cases.

Confirmed cases across the total population

The following chart shows daily new confirmed cases of COVID-19 across the total population.

The following chart shows daily new confirmed cases of COVID-19 broken down by age. This data is sourced from the official data portal of the Israeli Government.3

Hospitalizations

Hospitalizations by age

This chart shows new hospitalizations for COVID-19, broken down by age. This is measured as the rolling weekly sum of hospitalizations.

This chart shows new hospitalizations for COVID-19, disaggregated by geographic areas in Israel with ‘Early’ and ‘Late’ vaccination campaigns. This is measured as the rolling weekly sum of hospitalizations.

Hospitalizations for severe COVID-19 by age

This chart shows new hospitalizations for severe COVID-19, broken down by age. This is measured as the rolling weekly sum of hospitalizations.

This chart shows new hospitalizations for severe COVID-19, disaggregated by geographic areas in Israel with ‘Early’ and ‘Late’ vaccination campaigns. This is measured as the rolling weekly sum of hospitalizations.

Hospitalizations and ICU admissions in the total population

The following charts shown weekly hospitalizations and ICU admissions for COVID-19 across the total population.

Confirmed deaths
